How much will a father go to protect his only son? This is the crux of Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru (D16) that has been directed by debutant Karthik Naren, who is just 22. A murder mystery, the movie revolves around three incidences - namely a murder, a kidnap and an accident.
The movie spans over six years. Deepak (Rahman) is a retired cop. He recalls his famous unsolved psycho killer case to a young man, who wants to become an IPS officer. The movies goes back to the past where Deepak is still a policeman. He comes across a murder.
While probing into it and trying to find the reason behind the death, he gets another call saying an young girl is missing from her apartment, this leads to another accident. Deepak is in the verge of cracking the case and finding the murder when things take a topsy turn.
He realises that all the three incidents are connected and gets the shock of his life. How he deals with this shock and brings the murder to justice forms the rest of the story. The movie has a strong storyline. Although there are a few loopholes the plot has been well narrated.
The climax seems to be a bit tangled, however, the movie has a whole has come out clean.With a decent production value the film has been well packaged. Music by Jakes Bejoy is enjoyable. The background score is also decent.
Cinematography by Sujith Sarang is worth mentioning. Editing by Sreejath Sarang is pretty race and is in pace required for murder mystery. Rahman is present throughout the flick. His acting is par excellence and mature.
His role as a father, a policeman is distinct. He is tough and has added lots of value to the script. Karthick Naren has done his best in his first movie. He has managed to steals the show with his execution. He has managed to enthrall audience who are sure to talk about D16 even after leaving the screens. In short,
D16 has in it and is pretty engaging.
